EU & competition
Our lawyers are recognised as leading experts in the fields of both national and EU competition law, and our firm has a long track record of representing clients before the competition authorities and courts in Brussels, Luxembourg and the UK. Drawing on the firm's wider IP and technical expertise, we advise on everything from current licensing policy through to dealing with competition investigations and the latest changes in competition law. We have a strong record in dealing with competition arguments before the courts and routinely working alongside the firm's dispute resolution teams.
The team is particularly recognised for its work in relation to the intersection between intellectual property and competition law and has played a leading role in many of the cases in which this issue has been key, advising clients in high technology sectors such as mobile telephony, life sciences and computing. We have good relationships with other experts whose help can be crucial in dealing with competition law issues, including expert economists, accountants and forensic IT specialists.
